    Finally a 6-speed automatic for this beautiful sedan. It can now compete with the best luxury sedans out there from Germany and Japan...


    MASERATI QUATTROPORTE

    1. MASERATI excellence through passion

    THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE NEW MASERATI is to produce cars capable of conveying unique emotions in every situation, containing excellent content in terms of technology and craftsmanship in quality and finish. The Maserati production facility is a modern and technological workshop located in Modena, where powerful 'works of art' are produced that have won more than 30 awards of international recognition. This has been made possible by the true passion with which every engineer, technician and specialist designs, tests, and refines each individual vehicle as if it were their own.

    3. QUATTROPORTE AUTOMATIC comfort above all

    REVIVING THE SPIRIT OF THE ITALIAN FLAGSHIP, the car combines the comfort and ease of use of a luxury sedan with the pleasure of a pure 'drivers' car. The interior in Frau Leather, the automatic transmission, the luxury wood, the refined mechanics and the unique design of Maserati make it the winner of 25 'Best Car' awards from international magazines.

    MECHANICALS: PERFECT BALANCE

    MASERATI V8

    The normally aspirated 4244-cm V8, with two overhead camshafts, continuous-phase speed change gear at the aspiration side, four valves per cylinder controlled by hydraulic tappets, favors torque at low engine revolutions (460 Nm at 4250 rpm) yet with all the punch of a Maserati V8 (400 HP at 7000 rpm). The arrangement of the V8 inside the front axle ensures perfect balance of the loads between the front and rear axles (49% / 51%)2), to the full advantage of the on-road behavior.

    (Visit www.maseratiawards.com)

    HYDRAULIC GEARBOX: Maximum driving ease with the new 6-speed transmission, with sixth gear tuned to reduce fuel consumption and noise. To retain driving pleasure, the gearbox can be operated manually by the stick located on the central tunnel.

    WINNING COMBINATION: The state-of-the-art collaboration between Maserati and ZF made it possible to create the new hydraulic transmission that heralds the advance of the V8 into the low/medium range, but does not limit the power, guaranteeing gear changes even up to 7200 rpm. This is how top performance is born: maximum speed of 270 km/h and acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 5.6 sec.

    ON BOARD: LUXURY DESIGNED FOR LONG JOURNEYS

    The interior confirms the elegant and unique style of Maserati, expressing the craftsman like quality of the finish and the comfort of a flagship car designed for long journeys. The design is born under the sign of a luxurious functionality offering rapid and safe mastery of all the controls to drivers and a refined and technological space to passengers.

    The vehicle comes standard with electrically adjustable 14-position front seats, the driver's seat having three memory settings and 'Easy Entry' system. Maximum attention has been given to the rear passengers, thanks to comfortable electrically adjustable seats. The automatic twin-zone air conditioning, with new control software, a new air flow distribution, and standard laminated window panes, assures a high degree of thermal insulation, even when outside temperatures are high.

    As with the best Made in Italy and 'tailor-made' tradition, the furnishings are Frau Leather and woods of the finest quality. The customer can appoint the car to his or her own taste, selecting from among nine interior colors and five types of wood: Rosewood, Walnut, Mahogany, Black Piano and Tanganyika, a new material whose characteristic grain emphasizes the harmony and elegance of the interior. The standard features are completed by the sophisticated Bose system developed specially for the Quattroporte.

    "EXECUTIVE GT" AND "SPORT GT"

    Quattroporte Automatic comes in two other versions: Executive GT and Sport GT.

    The Executive GT version enhances the luxury of the materials used and the elegant designs. Recognizable by its chrome front grille, its side grilles and ball-polished 19'' wheel rims, this version pays close attention to the luxury of the interior and to the sophisticated finish.

    The Sport GT version has been designed to meet the requirements of clients who wish to enjoy the performance spirit and the sporty nature of the Quattroporte, indulging the typical ease of driving of a luxury flagship car. The Sport GT features a trident with red accents on the front, as used to appear on racing cars in the past, standard sport 'mesh' grill and a carbon fiber interior.

    From a technical point of view, a specific and sportier setting of the Skyhook software which manages the suspension gives it a distinct character, thus making full use of the 20'' wheel rims and of the steering-wheel-mounted transmission paddles (standard on Sport GT).

    4. QUATTROPORTE DUOSELECT the first true sports flagship

    THE QUATTROPORTE DUOSELECT enhances the sports car spirit of the Maserati flagship, guaranteeing driving excitement in true GT style. Having faster gear shifting times and standard 20'' wheel rims, the 'Sport GT' version emphasizes the sporty nature of the Quattroporte DuoSelect, making it the winner1) of 25 'World's Best Car' awards and the executive sedan with the best handling in the world.

    It's interesting to see that the automatic car's engine has more torque than the manual one. Anyway I thought that the automatic would improve the big Maser, but if the transaxle is gone, what's the point?

    Could be completely wrong, but IIRC 11 Quattroporte IIs were made before the De Tomaso takeover.

    And it was based on a streched SM chasis, wasn't it?

    Piacki do you ever take photos of cars anywhere other than paris?

    that yellow quattroporte is strange, its almost like the colour used on the old classic cars, that gave it a sort of 'upper-class' feel. It works a little bit. Because its boring in black or silver.

    Hmmm, yeah, somtimes in my neighbourhood (but rarely), or when I'm on holidays (at my grandmother's f.e., she lives in the French Riviera (plenty of exotics around there).

    I personally think it's VERY ugly and totally tasteless.
